Ultra Shifter with Arm

The Ultra Shifter ( often referred to as Ultimate) is a complete redesign of the factory shifter . It replaces the shift lever, the selector rod and the front coupler as well  as the shift arm. This shifter solidifies the components and makes them most ridgid and changes the geometry of the mechanism by replacing the shift arm.

The Ultra shifter is an integrated mechanism. It is designed to be installed in its entirety and not piecemeal. It is a night and day improvement over OEM both in the precision of the gear engagement and the repeatability of the pattern Price is generally between $399 and $449 and it is offered on a several models.

Ultra Shifter without Arm

The Ultra Shifter without  Arm ( often referred to as Ultimate) is a redesign of the factory shifter and not only replaces all the components but changes the geometry of the mechanism. However because the OEM arms on the models it covers are excellent this shifter reuses the arms and changes the geometry through a revolutionary cartridge pivot.

The above two kits represent different building techniques that work optimally for the models covered. So one is not better than the other. Often we get asked why there is no arm offered for the lower pictured mechanism. The short answer is that it is not needed and including it would raise the price of the shifter several hundred dollars for no improvement in performance.  However, the arm replacement is absolutely needed for the earlier models .
